It's that time of year again, time to get out on the lake and get some fishing in.  Fishing is one of those activities where you can state that you aren't "doing nothing" you are fishing!  It's a great excuse to be out on the lake, enjoying the day, the sun, and some relaxation all while "fishing".

Yes, I know people do actually enjoy fishing, it's not all like the statement above, that might just be me. And, as we all know, most people need a license in order to participate in this activity.  But there are some exceptions.
